Summary: This study focuses on determining student perceptions on the role of teaching technologies in undergraduate medical education.
Description: Best practices for using information technology in undergraduate medical education are unknown. Medical student input should play an important role in determining how technology is used in undergraduate medical education. Our objective was to determine student perceptions on the role of teaching technologies in undergraduate medical education. An anonymous electronic survey was distributed to medical students at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. We assessed medical students confidence (5-point Likert scale with 1 being not very confident and 5 being very confident respectively) and knowledge about teaching technologies (5-point Likert scale with 1 being not very knowledgeable and 5 being very knowledgeable respectively) . We asked students to rate (a 5-point Likert scale with 1 being not important, and 5 being very important respectively) which technologies they thought that faculty should know and should learn more about.
